Death & Dying

  • The Order of the Good Death “The Order is about making death a part of your life. That means committing to staring down your death fears- whether it be your own death, the death of those you love, the pain of dying, the afterlife (or lack thereof), grief, corpses, bodily decomposition, or all of the above. Accepting that death itself is natural, but the death anxiety and terror of modern culture are not.”
  • The Death Positive Movement
  • Death Salon: “We aim to subvert this death denial by opening up conversations with the public about death and its anthropological, historical, and artistic contributions to culture.”
  • Death and Culture Network, “The Death and Culture Network based at the University of York seeks to explore and understand cultural responses to mortality. It focuses on the impact of death and the dead on culture, and the way in which they have shaped human behaviour, evidenced through thought, action, production and expression. The network is committed to promoting and producing an inter-disciplinary study of mortality supported by evidence and framed by theoretical engagement.”
  • The Association for the Study of Death and Society (ASDS): “ASDS promotes the study of death in the arts, humanities, social and allied sciences.”
